  • You are aged 18 to 30*.
  • Your region is a member of the program.

*Some regions admit participants aged up to 35. Please, check the regions’ vademecums for further information. 

If you meet the qualifications you will be entitled to:
  • Apply for traineeship offers from businesses and organisations.
  • If your application matches the requirements of the businesses and organisations taking part in the programme, you will be entitled to 3 to 7 months’ paid traineeship in a foreign business.
